A Nigerian Twitter user @_Brayz, took to the platform to narrate how a Nigerian lady who got a University admission for Masters in the United State, got deported over the weaves she had.
According to @_Brayz, the lady who claimed she had no relatives in the United States before obtaining her Visa, had weaves in boxes she traveled to the United States with to sell. She also got flagged for 5 years as part of her punishment.
His tweets reads;
Imagine getting admitted into a US Uni for Masters, getting your visa and all that…only to be sent back by immigration & flagged for 5 years because you carried so many weaves in your box to go sell there. Tears
She had learned hairdressing and was told braiding & all that costs a lot over there. Trying to cash out, aunty carried two boxes filled with weaves. More weaves than clothing.
“What’s a student doing with all of these?” “My friends told me to bring them” … “But on your application form, you said you have no friends or family here?” “Errr…” “Turn around plis dear, we’ll put you on the next available flight back to Lagos”
Twitter user @Shegzy90 who reacted to the deportation, also disclosed that a lady who was caught with a sewing machine, was also deported to Nigeria. He tweeted;

This is coming after it was reported that a popular Nollywood actress, Lola Margaret, who was arrested for wire fraud in the United States a while back, was deported to Nigeria.
